So, after spending alot of money on my tank this week I have realized something. I STILL do not have moonlighting on my 55. What I ordered off ebay was total garbage, doesn't even penetrate an inch into the water. So glad that I took the time to glue them in place and I'm sure it will be a struggle to get them off, but they will be coming off.
I have also been continuing to dream of another tank. I know I want a massive tank...but I noticed today that in my 36 that the blue damsel is dying! Horay! The snails are too, owell. Either way, it is looking like the chance at redoing the project. I love the rock I have in that tank, covered with scorpid worms or whatever they are. So I was thinking that this might be my chance at a barebottom tank. I wouldn't be scared of breaking the bottom with the rock because it is an acrylic tank. I'd need to upgrade the lighting, the coralife 4 bulb t5ho is just bad. Maybe get a chance to try out the taotronic LEDs and be a cheapskate this time around! Only issue there would be the support brace down the middle of the tank...wonder how needed it really is.
But I found my new dream critter...wait for it...ELECTRIC FLAME SCALLOP. That thing actually has electricity go across its mantle...that is AWESOME. I think I could take good care of one...but should probably stop throwing money at my aquariums again. The 55 is full, literally, and the 36 is...well...it exists because I tend to ignore my boring FOWLR
. I mean the damsel is dying, the clown is small and swims around, and the royal gramma has finally changed its aggressive ways and lays around all day long in the spot it has slept in since day 1. Ok, enough random thoughts for right now.
